A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you want to use a certain feature that's not offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

When you obtain a shared hosting package from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so in case you host only 1 domain address in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for every single one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to choose the folder within the account that it will open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you will be able to access lots of functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated services because we haven't set an upper limit for this feature.

Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any of them, you are able to access the website files or view logs and usage statistics via fast access buttons.
